“Need to step it up”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

Nice restaurant by the beach with a good feel to it but that's where it goes wrong. You get ushered to your table and then the wait starts !. Service to slow to be last , they all seem busy but good knows why. Takes ages to get the menu ,then to order then to wait for it to arrive, then to order the bill and on it goes. Staff friendly but what's the point, you are already cheesed off at the slowness of everything !. With main courses charging 25 euros plus you wld think may be something different. But no, it's rip off south of France. You wld hope that's ices may be one day wld catch up with service and timeliness !
Anyway better places to eat at in my view and I live here !

“"Consistent"”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2014

Open throughout the year and in the evenings , the restaurant has the most fantastic beach location. The staff are attentive and friendly . The menu has remained unchanged for may years apart from daily specials. Do not expect a gourmet experience , but the ambience of the restaurant
Is well worth a visit.

“Upscale Lunch on the Beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2013 via mobile

What a wonderful spot for lunch only feet from the sea. On a sunny October day the deck was perfect and the parking free. Decor is "upscale white", service is attentive, the view is spectacular from this mid-beach location and the food was excellent. We both chose from the salad selection and were not disappointed.

“Clean family place. They try hard”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

Nice family place. Seating a bit cramped. Food nice - ie, nothing wrong with it, but if you're a foodie, don't bother, the quality just isn't there. having said that, they try very hard. It's clean, the service is excellent, and the local wines they serve are super (Bertrand Berlieu to name one). (Spelling?) If, however you are looking for a fairly inexpensive place on the beach for a family outing with several kids, this actually would probably be ideal.

“A very average lunch on a winter's day on the beach!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013

Myself and three friends decided to have lunch at the beach, despite it being a cold winter's day. Key West Beach restaurant is on the sand and has a wonderful panoramic view of the sea and beach of Pampleonne. The restaurant is nicely done out.

The food was okay but over priced. The way the menu was written on the blackboard, we presumed that the top half were "starters" and ordered accordingly, followed by "main" course. When the food arrived the portions were enormous for "starters" and we realised that they were not in fact "starters" but "main" courses! The food was well presented, but two of us had hot plates and unfortunately two had cold plates. The waitress was nowhere in sight to ask to have the plates/food heated.

The restaurant was practically empty and very cold despite a log fire burning in the hearth. Two of my friends kept their coats on - which not what one would expect to do in a restaurant. I didn't keep mine on but was not very warm.

I have visited this restaurant a few times over the years and always found it to be very good and reasonably priced, but not this time. I won't be going back.
